What they say:
The Beagle is a restaurant, bar and coffee shop in Shoreditch. The venue will be housed in three railway arches next to Hoxton Station. The venue gets its name from one of the steam locomotives that used to run the original East London line. The multi-faceted eatery, cocktail bar and coffee shop is the brainchild of Danny and Kieran Clancy whose past ventures include the Bonnie Gull Seafood Shack in Fitzrovia.
The daily changing menu offers traditional British led seasonal produce from the more than capable hands of head chef James Ferguson, who was previously head chef at Rochelle Canteen. Who, you will be happy to know, uses a wood grill for most of his menu. The connected bar serves cocktails along with British beers and wines by the carafe or bottle. There is seating for up to 55 diners and the bar can accommodate 45 people sitting. The outdoor area on Geffrye Street is open for up to 60 guests.
What we say:
With the multitude of fast-food and quick-stop eateries emerging in Shoreditch, Beagle is a refreshing addition. The seasonal menu and classic cocktails are just what the area needs to act as a nice alternative to the fast-paced eating culture of Shoreditch. The sophisticated venue and menu setup is sure to attract clientele that enjoys good food and great British food.
